    I don't know if this is relevant, but I'm using VirtualBox and couldn't figure out how to get the VirtualBox Shared Folders to work properly in Build 9860 either.

    What does work for me is setting a folder in the host PC to be Shared and just mapping to it directly, although that does make it accessible more widely than just host-guest.

    TP 9860 update from 9841 in Player 6.0.3, shared folders doesn't work, re-install Tools & reassign shared folder didn't work. Uninstall Tools in Add/Remove, reboot re-install tools...shared folders working.

Seems once you've connected a Network drive to W10 you can't get rid of it again -- I've done the checks to ensure that it isn't set to re-connect at logon. Cheers jimbo
